Emellish Colour Challenge : Birds

This is the first time I’ve ever entered the Embellish Magazine challenge although I look at it every time a new one comes out!!  Something compelled me to make a card for this one though – was it the birds?  The colours?  No, it was probably the bottles of wine in the photo!!! lol

The stamps are from the cutest little set by Sassafrass Lass called Olivia and Pals (much to my daughter Olivia’s delight) and the pink is stamped in Raspberry Fizz (PTI) and the brown is in Versafine Sepia (my dark chocolate wasn’t playing very nicely last night!!).  The cardstock, paper and ribbon are all Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is from Everyday Classics. I have popped the eyes on both of the owls and highlighted them with crystal effects but you can’t see that too well in the photo!!

Well, better be off – we’re going up to the apartment in Windermere for the weekend (first weekend we’ve gone to stay since it flooded last November).  I haven’t packed so much as a pair of knickers and as there’s 7 of us that’s a LOT of knickers to pack!
